Have reduced my medication (chlomipramine) from 100mgs to 25mgs over the past couple of months as I don't think after about 5 years they are going to have the same effect. I still feel depressed and have resigned myself to the fact that it is something I am going to have to live with. My GP is only offering me a homeopathic alternative but I don't really believe in that stuff. It will be interesting to see how it all goes when I finally come off them which should be around late october

I think so, although its not as severe I look at myself and just know I'm lacking that spark if you get what I mean
